Year 11 NCS 'Keep Doing Good' Project

Our Year 11 students have previously been offered the opportunity to take part in NCS this summer but sadly due to COVID-19 our summer programmes were cancelled nationally.
However all is not lost and we would like to extend an invitation to all students in year 11, 12 & 13 to take part in our repurposed social action / community projects ‘ Keep Doing Good’ Programme this August 2020.
The social action is likely to be in the form of a couple of different scenarios:

Working outdoors with local charities  (for example, up keeping communal spaces)

Engaging  with YMCA Worcestershire who have received funding to create and distribute ‘Happiness Hampers’. These will be deliver throughout our local communities for our more vulnerable neighbours. 

Whilst the project is ran by NCS, it is not NCS as we know it, it is FREE for all young people to be part of but does not earn them the NCS certificate, instead a certificate recognising their contribution to society during 2020. However, even if you complete the Keep Doing Good programme, you still get to sign up to the full NCS experience in Summer 2021 as long as you will be under 18 years old.
Post lockdown the country is going to need a little help to get back on its feet so this project has been designed to help our local and immediate communities, supporting them as we move forward out of the pandemic.
Keep Doing Good will be thoroughly risk assessed and planned in accordance with current social distancing and any other relevant government guidelines.
Do you think this might be something you or your young people may be interested in?
If so, check out our website to find out more information and sign up!
